There are many great opportunities for photography in Southern West Virginia, one of the greatest being the West Virginia State Fair. My husband and I went down to the fair grounds and enjoyed one of the most precious things of summer; a perfect, cool, crisp, breezy and sunny day in August. My intentions were to stick around and work on some long exposure night photography. I wanted implied motion of all the rides. That would have been great.
It's great to have intentions, but even better to be flexible. I found so many fun things in the daylight to photograph that I hadn't anticipated. We walked everywhere, caught the raptor show and pig races. When darkness finally fell we were too exhausted to go back to the car for the tripod.
Maybe next year!
